Posting date Vs Time created

Modified on Wed, 27 Apr, 2022 at 9:54 AM

When you are viewing transactions the date that is shown would be the Posting date, this is the date that the system posted the payment. The posting date is determined by your night audit. 

If your night audit is set to run at 03:00 then the PMS will not change to the next day until the night audit has run. 

As an example:

Real-time = The time associated with your timezone.

PMS time = The time that the PMS is set to.

Posting date = The date a transaction was posted within the PMS.

Time created = The real-time and date the payment was posted on the PMS

With an audit time of 03:00 (PMS time) posting a transaction at 02:00 real-time on the 29th would have the posting date of the 28th as the system has not changed to the next day yet. 

This is where the time created comes into effect. The postings report has the columns Posting date and Time created. The time created would reflect real-time whereas the posting time represents the PMS time. Using this report it is not uncommon to see a difference in the date posted and the time created. if you see for example posted date 28th and time created 29th this would mean that the postings occurred before your PMS time changed and after the next day changed by real-time.
